#1 - YOUR GROOM SEES YOU FOR THE FIRST TIME

Whether it is a “first look,” or the moment as you enter the ceremony aisle, that split second of pure emotion and love as your groom sees you in your stunning dress, drifting towards him, is beyond priceless. There is only ONE SECOND in the entire day to capture this moment, this look of pure adoration and gratitude that you are becoming his wife. He is overwhelmed with your beauty and the fact that in just a few moments, he can call you his wife!

Action Plan: Guarantee that your wedding photographer capture this timeless moment by ensuring that they always include a Second Photographer with them in the wedding package that you purchase. Although many photographers claim that they can function well without one, we insist that we work flawlessly with two photographers in every wedding - it gives multiple angles to every moment, every facial expression and more importantly, every split second in your groom’s face for this priceless expression as he sees you for the first time. This also ensures that while one photographer is capturing your groom’s reaction, the second photographer is equally capturing yours!






YOUR HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR SCENE

Believe it or not, one of the most forgotten wedding photos is a stunning picture of you, fully complete with your makeup, hair, bridal dress, and bouquet, posing in flattering “classic hollywood” ways to naturally showcase your ethereal beauty, elongating your body, and capturing your most gorgeous features as a glowing bride!
Action Plan: Make sure that your wedding photographer is naturally good and comfortable at posing women of all shapes and sizes, to most flatter and showcase their natural beauty. Do this by viewing multiple real wedding examples on their blog and website, and note how the bride is posed and captured by the angles of the camera.

YOUR BRIDAL BOUDOIR PHOTO

Beautiful bridal lingerie is one of those hidden secrets that occurs behind the scenes during your “getting ready” wedding photos. Oftentimes, your maid of honor or bridesmaids are privy to this luxurious lingerie that you have purchased for your wedding night.

Action Plan: Surprise your husband by scheduling a small, 15 minute bridal boudoir session with your wedding photographer on the day of your wedding to capture a few sexy, luxurious photos of you in your lingerie, and accent it by your wedding details, like your veil or jewelry. Your husband will be delighted and you will LOVE forever remembering these priceless, classically beautiful moments of your wedding day!

STUNNINGLY ROMANTIC MOMENT AS NEW HUSBAND & WIFE

Most photographers will give you several different photos of you posing with your husband. 

But the trick is to truly capture the intimacy and thrilling excitement that exists, now that you are husband and wife! Guarantee that these photos are not only timeless, but authentically portray your relationship and every emotion running through your veins. These are when those “magazine-worthy” romantically intimate wedding photos are born!

Action Plan: Book your wedding photographer during the “golden hour” where you will be delicately bathed in golden, soft sunshine right before sunset, which will illuminate your features, coloring, and gorgeous dress. You will look magical and unforgettable, and this photo will preserve this moment for the rest of your lives, guaranteed!

first look with your father

People often plan out their first look with their groom, but what about the other important man in your life? For a father, seeing his baby girl in a bridal gown is enough to bring any man to tears. Don’t forget about this special moment and pass it by as just another event of the wedding.
Action Plan: Tell your photographer if this is an important moment and guarantee that they will be present. We can easily schedule this in the wedding timeline to accommodate this traditional right of passage, as a father hands his daughter into the arms of her new husband. You will never want to miss this incredible memory!

PRE-CEREMONY EMOTIONS & CELEBRATIONS

The getting ready session with you and your bridesmaids can be a fun, flirty, and authentic way to showcase every bit of detail and planning that has gone on with you and your close girlfriends, before the big day! Your emotion is running high, laughter is feverous, and everyone is preparing for the big “I do.”

Action Plan: Have your photographer schedule enough time to accurately and authentically capture the expressions, emotions, and silly things you and your girls do behind the scenes. We can easily read expressions, and capture these moments for you and your bridesmaids to forever look back, laugh, and cherish together.

SHOWCASE THE DRESS

More than likely, you will have many photos of you with your dress throughout your wedding album. But many of those photos will feature the train bustled, or swept behind you at the alter, or trailing behind as you walk. Yet choosing which dress you fall in love with is one of the most important wedding planning stages, and it is so often forgotten how important the dress can mean to you!
Action Plan: Make sure that you get at least one beautiful photo of your dress completely spread out in an elegant fashion, showcasing the marvelous details that you so love PLUS highlighting how wonderful it looks on you!
